Cannot Shred Files

I tried everything, from claiming ownership of the Folders, try all sorts of fixes that I found online.

Does Bitdefender Fileshredder not have admin rights?

I am the only user and a Admin so how come I cant delete any files?

It always sais I do not have permission, how the ****** do I get the rights/give bitdefender the rights to obliterate those ****** files. It's been weeks that I have been trying to get it to work myself.


  • Hello @UnknownPotato,

    If you want to remove a file permanently from your system, you need to delete the data physically from your hard disk. The Bitdefender File Shredder will help you to quickly shred files or folders from your computer using the Windows contextual menu, by following these steps:

    In the event you are encountering permission errors, I would recommend contacting the Technical Support Teams, as more information might be required to troubleshoot this. You can get in touch with our engineers by choosing one of the contact channels available here:
